ITV’s award winning comedy Benidorm returns to the channel for its ninth series.

The new holiday season kicks off at the Solana resort with the return of two popular characters – Liam and Sam.  Viewers caught a tantalising glimpse of Liam at the end of the last series and he is reunited with his adoring Dad Les/Lesley played by the legendary Tim Healy.

The Dawson’s, played by our Julie Graham and Steve Edge, arrive for a new holiday that doesn’t get off to a great start and when Sheron’s Mum Loretta joins them – Benidorm will never be the same again!

Also look out for a guest spot from funnyman Jason Manford.

Series nine is a suitcase packed full of all your favourite characters, great guest stars, holiday mishaps and Mr Wu!

“Benidorm” starts on Wednesday 1st March, 9pm on ITV1.
